TIA Daily COVID-19 Update: June 10th

As TIA continues to monitor the situation surrounding COVID-19 and it’s impact on the 3PL and transportation industries, here is your Daily Update for June 10. As a reminder, you can find all the latest information, resources, guidance, and news from TIA’s .

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced their decision to extend the emergency declaration that relaxes the hours-of-service (HOS) regulations until July 14th with some modifications. The modification scales back some of the trucking operations that were covered under the earlier exemption. The modified emergency declaration allows regulatory relief for drivers providing direct assistance in support of emergency efforts related to the virus and is limited to transportation of:


  • Livestock and livestock feed.
  • Medical supplies and equipment related to the testing, diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19.
  • Supplies and equipment necessary for community safety, sanitation and prevention of community transmission of COVID-19 such as masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, soap and disinfectants.

The previous versions allowed for a wider variety of goods to be included under the emergency declaration including fuel, raw materials, paper products and groceries.



Tuesday was a particularly good day for cases. The improvement came from the new-case states whose numbers exceeded the old Hot Spot states. With the approach of those states to very low numbers, the daily reductions that have dominated U.S. stats will soon disappear. So, for the U.S. to achieve overall reductions, the reductions must come from the new states. We see that today in Arizona, a recent expander.

Note that one or two good days will put Mexico and Brazil in the Inflection phase, something we have been hoping for. They are where the U.S. was a month ago.

We’ll be back on Friday afternoon with additional COVID-19 updates and information.
